Gold Tone Mastertone™ OB-3 Orange Blossom 'Twanger' Pre-War Banjo w/ Case (005)

$ 1,399.95

This 2024 Gold Tone Mastertone™ OB-3 Twanger Pre-War Banjo has been a demo here in our retail store. It is in excellent condition although it does show a pinpoint-sized ding on the front lip of the resonator (See picture). Otherwise, this banjo is very much in like-new condition and shows no dings, dents, scratches, or any obvious playwear. This banjo has been professionally set up and plays great! The neck is straight, the action is low and comfortable, and the frets are in excellent condition. This banjo will come complete with the original Gold Tone Hardshell Case that is also in like-new condition. Awesome deal on a fantastic playing and sounding Gold Tone Mastertone™ OB-3 Twanger Banjo!

In late 2018, "Banjo Ben" Clark, Jake Stogdill, and Robby Boone had a concept for replicating one of the most iconic banjos, played by the one of the most iconic banjo players of all time, JD Crowe's original RB-3 ("Banger"). After extensive research, and with great attention to every detail, Gold Tone was able to rebirth this classic banjo. What makes this banjo truly unique is its "No Hole" tone ring, which really tightens up the sustain. It also features the original measurements on the headstock, neck and body, nickel plated hardware, slanted resonator walls, vintage inlay, a Presto tailpiece, concentric resonator rings, and a brown mahogany finish. We've designed hundreds of banjos in the last 25 years, but tone-wise, this outperforms every previous model. Includes an archtop hardshell case and a lifetime transferrable warranty.
